It seems that a railroader in or der to give warning to the engineer of an approaching train of another train ahead, placed two torpedoes, such as is used by trainmen for sig naling, on the rails directly in front of the Atlas Hotel. When the train passed over the torpedoes, both let go with a report resembling the roar of dynamite bombs. Then the fun started, the guards had been dozing and sleeping around the Hotel quarters up to this time. They must have thought the strikers were after them. Such scrambling, hauling and pulling was never witnessed in this vicinity before. It was anything to get out before the building blew up, every body for themselves and the devil take the hindmcst, Old residents in the vicinity say they never knew there was so many oppenings in the building as was used on this occasion. They poured out of doors, windows, cellar, and attic. Two of the big fellows, and they are big, tried to get out of the front doors, which are narrow, at the same time and stuck. It is said they almost tore each others cloth ing off before extricating them selves. Just let your imagination run along with this and you will get more fun out of it.

Th'.s description of a pacifist exit is from the Minne sota Union Advocate: Organized labor is showing its genuine loyalty to the government and its unawavering hostility to the Peoples' Peace Council in many places, T.vo of the most striking exhibitions of these feelings have been made recently in Denver. At the last meeting of Teamsters' Un ion No. 575 in that city a repre sentative of the Denver branch of the Council presented himself at the outer door of the meeting hall and asked permission to address the union, stating that he expected to get the members to vote a monthly contiibutioa to the branch.

Then, at a regular meeting of Carpenters' Union No. 55, which owns the hall in which its meetings are held, great indignation was expressed by the members when it was dis closed that the hall was being used to make it appear that the union favors the pro-German pacifist movement in the city. A motion prevailed refusing the use of the hall for such a purpose and with drawing the two delegates previous ly elected by the union to the Peo ple's Peace Council. Ben Salmon, secretary of the Denver branch of the Council, was forbidden to enter the hall thereafter. Many Cincinnati unions As sist Textile Workers Of This City.

Then there will be assistance from other sources. The Woman's La bel League, the Iron Molders and the Street Car Men, all will be out to help and how in the name of Culla Smith and Ferd Acker any one can escape wearing a tag is be yond our ken. All committees are to meet at Trades Council hall at 9 o'clock sharp, Saturday morning wberr they will receive tags, cans and in structions and all get off with a flying start. ^3.
